Gluten Free Restaurants, meaning 100% free of gluten, are a real treat for people with gluten sensitivity. Being able to order anything off the menu gives you a real sense of confidence. You know you aren’t going to get contaminated food and risk your health by eating out. It allows you to relax and enjoy yourself.
These restaurants are popping up here and there, but may still be hard to find. There are other restaurants serving gluten free food though, including restaurants that have a gluten free menu in addition to their regular menu, and restaurants serving gluten free pizza.
There are some pretty amazing restaurants on this list! Help me make this the best list by sharing your favorite gluten free restaurant.

Posana Café in Asheville, North Carolina is 100% gluten free according to the owner, who has Celiac Disease herself... They don’t advertise it to be GFree, and as a result they are very successful even with the non-gluten free crowd, which is pretty amazing and says a lot about them on many levels. If you are in the area, please give them a try!
Some sample items include pancakes, omelets, corn tortillas, and home fries at breakfast; Saturday and Sunday brunch you’ll find french toast; lunch and dinner menus include many salads, soups with home made breadsticks, and a variety of sandwiches and entrées.
